I broke out in a cold sweat, collapsed into the nearest chair and dropped my lead weight head between my knees, my torment is over, my son’s circumcision is complete. That day would pale in comparison to the trials I would soon face as three years later my son Aidan is diagnosed with autism. All parents who are unexpectedly transported to the mysterious planet called Autism will gain a candid, heartfelt, and sometimes humorous view into this extraordinary disorder. The moment readers view the table of contents, they will be struck by the book’s genuine transparency regarding what autism looks like in the home, at school, and in the public eye. Succinct vignettes of our family trip to the neurologist, Aidan’s unconventional therapies, and the funky yet lovable quirks of our son will help reassure others affected by autism that they are not alone. Autism memoirs by celebrities like Jenny McCarthy and Rodney Peete did well. My account will succeed, too, because it has the opposite appeal: I can fully relate to the ordinary guy facing an extraordinary challenge, because that’s who I am. My book, entitled My Boy Has Autism: A Father’s Journey, will provide all readers a transparent view into what autism really looks like in daily life. It has been a therapeutic experience to share a piece of my topsy-turvy life in the pages of this book.
